    Converted Legacy Event

    This event was converted from our old contest and event system into our new jam format for historic preservation. Some details may be confusing in the new jam context.



    Welcome to the second Valheimians Build contest where creative vikings will build in the Black Forest of Valheim to compete for honor, $200 Steam prizes and digital trophies!

    Why the Black Forest?
    We wanted an open theme providing creative freedom while still having a common ground between the entries. We hope the biome will naturally influence your builds and focus your creative energy by limiting the choices of where you and your competition can build. With the recent release of Hearth & Home, we're excited to see what can be accomplished with the new building materials in Valheim!

    Please read the full contest details. If you have any questions or comments, post to our contest thread.

    Contest Rules

    1. Build in the Black Forest.
    2. Devcommands & debugmode are allowed.
    3. Enter your own work created for this contest. Teamwork is allowed but only the account that submits will receive the prizes.
    4. No third-party content added with mods that is unavailable in vanilla Valheim. No mods that alter existing building materials or their positioning. This would give an unfair advantage.
    5. Downloadable build is not required.
    6. One entry.

    Tips & Recommendations

    1. Video previews are optional. Please try to limit to 10 minutes.
    2. Utilize the description of your submission to present details, additional information, lore, etc.
    3. Read our article on tips to improve your contest entry.

    How to Enter

    1. Create your build in the Black Forest within the one month entry period.
    2. When posting your build to Valheimains, check the contest box to enter it.
    3. Take screenshots and/or YouTube video of your build. Consider using the description to help the overall presentation.
    Note: You are free to update your submission on the website up until the entry period ends. During phase 2 & 3, your submission is locked from editing until after the contest is completed.

    Contest Process

    Phase 1: Entry Period.
    One month period to submit entries. The community views, gives rubies, comments, etc and Judges review entries meet requirements.

    Phase 2: Review Period.
    5 day period in which Judges review last minute entries along with the community.

    Phase 3: Finalists announced & Judging begins.
    The site calculates the finalists based on entry statistics. Judges will rate each finalist entry on three criteria. See Judging Critera below. There will be 25 finalists if there are less than 150 entries. If the contest receives 150 entries or more, there will be 50 finalists.

    Phase 4: Final Leader board calculated & Winners Announced!
    Once the last judge rates the last finalist, the site will automatically average all judges scores and publish the leader board with the winners. Cyprezz will contact winners via private message on this platform with details on how to claim your Steam credit.

    Judging Criteria

    All finalists will be rated with following criteria on a 1-10 scale. All judges ratings will be averaged to generate the final leader board.
    1. Concept & Originality
      Rating of your overall build concept, idea and originality / creativity. The thought & intention behind your work.
    2. Technique & Execution
      Rating of technique used to accomplish your build. It does not have to be complex to have a well executed build. It does not have to be a massive build to rate well. Details are important too!
    3. Presentation & Experience
      Rating of how well you presented your build and the overall experience to the viewer / player.
    Overall, this contest is a friendly competition among Valheim builders. We hope that you'll enjoy seeing each others creativity without taking the contest too seriously. That said, we will try our best to have a smooth, fair and positive experience for everyone. Looking forward to seeing what the community builds!

We are seeking two more judges for this contest. If you're interested in becoming a judge, please send a PM to Cyprezz along with examples of your builds either on this platform or others.
